Warby Parker Glasses
I've been in need of a new pair of glasses for awhile. I saw some nice designer frames the other day, but the prices are just too prohibitive for me. Until now. Meet Warby Parker. I love the web site, the ability to upload a photo and virtually "try on" glasses, the fantastic styles and the prices ($95!)of this brand:
"A collaboration between four close friends, Warby Parker was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland eyewear available today. Prescription eyewear simply should not cost $300+. The industry is controlled by a few large companies that have kept prices artificially high, reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options. By circumventing traditional channels and engaging with our customers directly through our website, Warby Parker is able to provide higher-quality, better looking prescription eyewear for under $100."
A-freaking-men. Oh, and they even sell a monocle, too. Dang.
In addition,Warby Parker partners with renowned non-profits, such as RestoringVision.org, to deliver one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair that they sell.
Affordable and altruistic. Excellent.
*Now of course, if you're the type that must have top-of-the-line, bespoke glasses and are willing to pay upwards of $5,000, Tom Davies is your man.
